“…What’s especially ironic (Not “ironic”; merely par for the Progressive course!) is that all of the water diversions intended to benefit the environmentmay be causing irreparable environmental damage. Communities and farmers have drilled deeper wells and pumped more groundwater to compensate for reduced imports from the delta, leading to severe land subsidence.
"A recent report by the California Department of Water Resources found that the San Joaquin Valley is sinking at a rate of nearly two inches per month in some areas. Land around Corcoran dropped 22 inches between May 2015 and September 2016, complicating engineering work onthe state’s bullet train.(NOT the BULLET TRAIN!!!) Subsidence has also reduced the carrying capacity of the California Aqueduct, which delivers water to Southern California, by 20%.
California has an arid climate, and parched times will return, which is all the more reason to take advantage of the wet years. That greens and politicians won’t do so suggests they almost wish for permanent drought.“ . . .
. . . or famine:
…one thing’s for certain: the Liberal elites in Hollywood and Silicon Valley will never feel the pinch…let alone suffer the effects of real thirst. " . . .
